by Anissa on June 23, 2008

I was recently asked by a visitor (who wants to remain anonymous) about Vintage Crafts, Scrapbooking, and Items. WOW!! That’s a tall order! So, because someone asked, and I love the research…I came up with some really great Vintage finds. Some of the links below are for scrapbooking, some are little trinkets, clip art, antiques or about antique finds, embellishments, etc.

Thanks for linking to me at One of a Kind Wisconsin (I am the 6th link on your list) – although I sell and write about everything vintage… I really love to find vintage items for scrapbookers to use. Which is kind of funny because I am strictly a digital scrapper myself. That’s because I don’t like clean up. I do like to linger over the vintage treasures though before I pass them on first. Like treasure- I suppose.
